A retired Veteran’s Affairs Officer for Geneva County has surrendered to authorities for allegedly attacking the Probate Judge.
Edsel Bonds, 66, is charged with second-degree assault. Police say bonds attacked Geneva County Probate Judge Fred Hamic with a cane during a dance at the Samson VFW last Friday night.
The two men had reportedly argued earlier that day. Judge Hamic says he was not seriously injured during the incident.
Bonds is free on a $2,500 bond.
